Common Core also has data mining
Schools have already added Iris scanners for students to use, and also tracking ID cards students have to keep on them. As well as knowing what your religion is, what political views you have, are you gay and other very personal irrelevant information and other intrusive questions. It also inserts political views and ideologies into test and assignment questions and word problems. Global warming, presidential executives orders, rewording and changing the meaning to things like amendments in the constitution. It leaves the bureaucrats in Washington and the federal government in total control to dictate how what gets taught in schools on an unproven experimental program that comes with a hefty price tag for its uniform standard cookie cutter one size fits all approach to education, killing teacher flexibility and specialized education for individual students. Because common core is for primary school, once you enter high school, the learning curve will be steeper than it ever was before when you have to forgot common core, and do things the old way that is still used in high school, that you would have learned in primary school to begin with before common cores creation.
Initially common core was touted as being this super effective form of teaching that proved highly successful over seas, but they had to recant those claims when people here began to review it and research the claims. Then the federal government said they would not give federal funding to states that did not accept common core, forcing them to accept it if they wanted funding.
If you do not know why one of the pics is considered bad, let me know and I will explain.
I know mothers who are pulling their kids out of school right and left and looking for ways to home-school them because of ^THIS BULLSHIT.
Pardon my French.
But this is bullshit.
Oh my X’hal.
Shit, that possessive nouns worksheet is IN NO WAY COMPLETELY CREEPY WITH ITS NOT-SO-SUBTLE POLITCAL PROPOGANDA SERIOUSLY WHAT THE HELL GUYS.
I got to design the TTG version of Red X. No big changes here to the original series design …You don’t mess with perfection :)
I actually believe artists and scientists think very similarly. Complex, abstract thought? They both have that down. It’s all about where that thinking takes you after that.
Words cannot describe how much I love this post.
I think this is funny just because as an artist I’m conditioned to notice those same exact things and am supposed to know how they work, or at least why everything looks the way they look in the observable world.
Hot Topic is known amongst artist groups as one of the worst offenders of art theft in U.S. retailers. I know artists are important to What Pumpkin, and I’d imagine multiple cases of art theft would be a very big deal. The most well-known of the cases were stolen fan art from independent artists, which is the same demographic the Design Contest was aimed to. I’m an artist myself and I wouldn’t want to support a store that steals from my peers.
The people running Hot Topic have zero respect to artists and to copyright law. They’ve been ripping-off independent artists’ storefronts, and continue do so. The whole company really should have been shut down long ago.
If you support artists, independent, fan artist, or any kind, you should oppose Hot Topic and MSPA’s association with them!
Tell What Pumpkin to kick Hot Topic out of the Design contest RIGHT NOW.
We have so little time left to stop this please tell them that it is completely unacceptable to do any sort of business with petty art thieves.
Even if you don’t know what to say, or if you think it would compromise the contestants; It won’t. Just please voice your thoughts in anyway you can put them. Don’t let Hot Topic get a dime out of Homestuck.
And I might note that it’s worth keeping an eye out to make sure your own work in’t taken advantage of.
You know what I hate? When people get pissed off when you tell them you don’t want them to touch you. Like excuse me, I don’t actually want you to touch my arm. I don’t want a hug right now. I don’t give a shit if you’re family. I don’t care if the phrase “I don’t want to be touched” puts you off. Just don’t fucking touch me.
I’m the most horrible person in the world
It fell unrelenting from the sky in fat, round droplets, splashing against the wet pavement before it cascaded in rivers toward the drains. It dimmed the glow of the traffic lights, making them a soft glow rather than their vibrant colours. It dimmed the headlights of cars which inched down the street, the whippers swishing frantically. It obscured people as they huddled indoors, or clutched at windblown umbrellas and overcoats.
It obscured the bolt which struck her.
It chilled Beast Boy and gave him a cold bad enough that Raven decided to play nurse and feed him chicken soup back at the Tower. It chilled Cyborg’s human parts enough that he was clad in his yellow raincoat and burdened by the hat. It chilled the citizens of Jump City during their dashes to reach cover.
It chilled Robin’s heart as he watched her fall.
It swallowed the laughing form into its embrace, disappearing into the wet. Lost and forgotten, vengeance and revenge taken and deed done. It engulfed the world, nothing else existed.
It swallowed her whole.
It tore his voice from his throat. It ripped at his lungs and his mind and tossed them away. It clawed out his stomach and let it spill onto the wet.
It screamed with him as she hit the pavement.
Red liquid melted into pink, only to be washed away to the drain. Cyborg’s ashen face melted into horror, but he was too far away to make a difference. Water tugged at Robin’s feet, the wash causing him to slip and fall as he scampered to her side.
It washed the life away.
It howled her name, echoed sears upon the soul. It called and begged and pleaded and was lost to the storm. Shaking fingers snatched at a pulse, finding none.
It lifted her up into his arms. It carried the tears down his face and on to hers without a whisper of hesitance. Sodden hair swirled around him as he bent his head.
Don’t leave me. Please don’t leave me.
Rain, raging wind, darkness and electricity howled around him as he cradled her. Everything was lost to the storm and nothing else mattered. Waves crashed in the harbour, wind howled through the trees and as they huddled in the rain, his heart broke.
Sunlight has rays.
Hope came with Cyborg. A hulking, mechanical man with a heart of gold and compassion to match, and sense which wasn’t knocked out of him when love fell. Fingers which were sure as they checked in the right places for a pulse which was different than a humans. Hope which came with a sigh and a frantic call for aid.
Let’s get her out of the rain.
i have done the thing
THAT ISN’T LUBE
The amount of these squares that apply to fanfic about actual living men is kind of hilarious.
As someone who used to beta, and judge in fanfic contests, this is a song I am familiar with. I used all my tears, I now cry only blood.
UGH. Definitely/defiantly. Nothing’s touching that one fic that had so many spelling errors that it was actually jarring. Like instead of “lunge” they had “lounge” n_n
Cardcaptor Sakura Season 1 OP Rendered in 3D Using Blender
Amazing quality, pretty smooth animation and most importantly, THE SONG.
I’m feeling oddly nostalgic these days.
THIS WAS MADE IN BLENDER HOLY SHIT
